Help to classify
To organize
To name
They help to find a reason
A scapegoat
A blame

We use them everyday
In a store
In school
Their mark is strong and clear
Something’s “lame” or 
Something’s “cool”

They label it as “healthy”
They label it as “bad” 
They label it as “very sweet”
Or simply “raving mad”

The problem starts to escalate
To rise
To worsen
But if you peel the label off
You’ll find
It’s just a person
